JinboYutaka's one-point advice!


When you cut flower stems with this knife. Please cut them so as to draw the stems on the blade forward without moving the knife.
In peeling an apple, you peel it without moving the knife, it is the same as the action.

How to grip the florist knife

2. Make the thumb in parallel to the blade.

To widen the cut surface of the stems and branches, cut diagonally!
1. Have a stem with one hand.
2. Place the stem between the thumb and the blade.
3. The knife is not moved, cut the stem by pulling it forward.

The crafting process of a custom knife

The "custom knife"is a handmade knife that is not a mass-produced product.
It is finished one by one by craftsman.
(1) Selecting materials, die-cutting, drilling, stretching

ATS-34 stainless steel which has excellent sharpness and durability is used for the material of the blade.
The blade material is die-cut, a hole is drilled in the cut part, then the part is stretched and the bend is corrected.

(2) plane polishing, quenching
The part is adjusted to constant thickness by plane polishing and is quenched at a high temperature to increase the hardness.

(3) shaving,sharpening
The part is shaved and sharpened to be a thin blade that cuts well.

(4)arrangement , caulking
After assembling the parts, holes are drilled in blade part and handle part and then a pin is passed through them, and spread by hitting both ends of the pin, and tighten or firmly fixed.
"Caulking" is a process that Fukuta thinks it is the most important.
Depending on the material, there is a risk to crack, caulking is one of the difficult techniques that requires acceleration by skilled craftsman.

(5) Paper cliff, polishing, sharpening, inspection and adjustment

The handle is checked by holding one by one and shaved to be easier to hold. Then it is polished to be glossy. Finally, cutting edge is put to a whetstone, and make sure that the blade moves in opening and shutting smoothly.

How to care

After use, please wipe off the moisture and dirt cleanly and storage.
Sometimes put oil in the bent part and the opening and closing will be smoother.

Producer's profile

Tak Fukuta studied under R.W. Loveless who is called a god of knife


"The most difficult part is caulking. It is making holes to fragile materials such as turquoise or white lipped pearl oyster, inserting a pin through holes, hitting both ends of it and fastening parts. It is difficult to know how much I can hit the fragile materials."
Fukuta's knife is made one by one carefully in craftsmanship, knife name TAK FUKUTA has been engraved in all.

Fukuta blade factory has manufactured especially luxury knife for export since its foundation in 1946 and has continued to pursue world-class knife.

Currently, Kazuhiro who is the third generation continues to pursue the blade making as a tool to help people in life while testing them in the field.

We pursue "Making a knife as a tool"


"Since we actually test our knives in the outdoors, we find the usability is much more different even in a difference of 2mm blade length.
We pursue usability, safety to hold than cool designs.
We would like to continue to produce knives which are loved by users as tools."
